Ten Year Vow Renewal Wedding Anniversary Film - Billy&Tristin // Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park in Santa Cruz, CA
We had the honor of filming and photographing Billy&Tristin’s ten-year vow renewal in one of the most beautiful locations on earth. Thirty of their closest friends and family all traveled from Nevada to California to witness Billy&Tristin recite their vows in a peaceful spot surrounded by gorgeous Redwood trees.
This family is truly inspiring. You can hear it in all the speeches from their loved ones, but hear it from us as well. In the short season we were able to get to know this family, they impacted us. The love they share for one another, for their kids and for God is moving and something for all to strive towards.
Billy&Tristin met in 7th grade. Tristin shared that after they started dating in 9th grade she knew pretty quickly that she was going to marry Billy. They eloped when they were both 19 and this past March on their ten year anniversary, they recommitted themselves to one another. Both Stephen and I have so much respect for these two. We normally witness couples as they first commit themselves to each other as husband and wife, but it’s so awesome to see a couple with their first ten years under their belt, who value celebrating marriage. Stephen and I talk a lot about marriage on the blog because we really want to inspire others that even on the hard days remember why they chose each other. Marriage isn’t always easy or like a fairy-tale story but it’s worth fighting for one another and loving each other unconditionally through it all. We saw that powerful love displayed through Billy&Tristin no doubt!
Capturing love stories like this on film is so rewarding. We can just imagine this family being able to watch this together years later when the two little ones are all grown up. This lasting legacy of love that will be passed down for generations is so special. Thank you Billy&Tristin for inviting us along to capture the magic of this day! We can't wait to see what future adventures life holds for you two and your family.
